China Airlines’ Tenth Airbus A350 Takes Off from Toulouse Using Sustainable Fuel

China Airlines is doing its part to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by participating in a biofuel program being jointly developed by Airbus and Air TOTAL.

The 10th China Airlines Airbus A350 aircraft, which took off for Taipei from Toulouse on Thursday, is using Sustainable Aviation/Alternative Fuels (SAF) to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by around 20,000 kg.

The fuel has received the international certificate of sustainability (COS) for its ability to effectively reduce GHG emissions and environmental impact.

Its use on China Airlines’ A350-900 energy-saving aircraft will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 30% and set a new milestone for Taiwanese carriers.

China Airlines Chairman, Nuan-hsuan Ho, said, "The growth of the global aviation industry has led to an increase in carbon dioxide emissions as well so SAF is considered an important way of reducing carbon emissions from the aviation industry. China Airlines hopes the experience gained this time will encourage the development of environmentally sustainable and high-efficiency energy policies in Taiwan, serve as a reference for industry, government and academic research in the future, set an example for other domestic carriers and contribute to the development of SAF by the global aviation industry."
